When I understand things, my anxiety lessens. It is because I am ‘high risk’ that I have concerns and feel questions need to be asked by politicians, and scientists alike. If we understand how the virus works, we will understand how to reduce Covid-19, instead of going into it blindly.
The UK government has laid its Covid-19 recovery road map and wants children to go back into school by the 8th March. There are concerns from worried parents that unless teachers and assisting staff are fully protected, there is nothing to stop the virus spreading and their children catching Covid-19.
Professor Herb Sewell has said he believes the government have taken a massive gamble by vaccinating everyone with a first dose with a 12-week gap, before the second dose is given. It is because people are catching Covid between the first and second jab, that these issues need to be addressed.
We need to be able to understand how the virus works so we can live alongside it. The concerns from independent scientists also need to be addressed. Parents’ concerns need to be addressed.
It is only when we begin to understand how the virus works and how it has been able to mutate, that we can act and it will start to reduce for good.
